Norfolk House Harvest Festival

Posted on: October 18th 2013

On Tuesday 8th October, the children, staff and parents of the school gathered to celebrate the Harvest. The children were excited at what lay ahead. The theme was ‘Harvests around the World.’ It began with Form 2 presenting how harvest is celebrated in America with Thanksgiving. This was colourful with the USA flag displayed. Pre-Prep informed everyone about where in Great Britain foods are grown and harvested. This was very informative. The sweet song of the choir performing ‘Harvest Song’ told us all of the effort that is put into the Harvest. Following on from the choir were Form 3 who told us about how harvest is celebrated in India. The children performed a role play showing the Onam festival.

Form 4 performed a Chinese Harvest. They had made some lovely lanterns and told us of the fruits produced in China. Form 5 enjoyed showing us how harvest is celebrated in Ghana which is part of Africa. The class had produced some colourful Ghanaian weavings. It was now the turn of Father Pybus who told how all of the harvest items on display in the church required water. Form 6 then performed a Middle Eastern Harvest which covered four countries in the Middle East and how they each celebrated differently but are all one in their need of a harvest. Finally Key Stage 2 children sang the ‘Harvest Samba’ and ‘Jesus and the Sandwiches’ which told us of the importance of each other and all the foods collected. The event was concluded by Miss Ellison thanking everyone for all their efforts and wishing everyone a happy harvest. The whole event was full of useful information about the populations of each country and their different foods. What a fabulous harvest.
